Discover what support coordination is and how it can help you to work more effectively within the NDIS support system.


If you are someone who is navigating the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), you might be feeling a bit overwhelmed with all of the different services and supports available.
One term you might have come across is ‘support coordination’ which might sound a bit confusing at first. But fear not, we are going to break it down and show you how support coordination can be useful to you!

First things first, let’s define what support coordination actually is. Essentially, it’s a service that is funded by the NDIS to help participants navigate the disability support system.

Think of it like having a personal guide who can help you understand your NDIS plan, identify your
goals, and connect with the right service providers.

They can also help you manage your budget and make sure you are getting the most out of your plan.

There are a whole bunch of ways that support coordination can help you, including:
Understanding Your NDIS Plan
One of the most important things that a support coordinator can help you with is understanding your NDIS plan. They can help you figure out what it covers, what your entitlements are, and how to make the most of your plan.
Identifying Your Goals
Another key aspect of support coordination is helping you identify your goals and the types of supports you need to achieve them. This could include things like finding a job, getting more involved in your community, or improving your health and wellbeing. A support coordinator can work with you to develop a plan for how to achieve these goals and connect you with the right service providers.
Connecting You with Service Providers
A support coordinator can help you find the right service providers for your needs. Whether you’re looking for a speech therapist, occupational therapist, or something else entirely, your support coordinator can help you make contact and arrange appointments.
Managing Your Budget
If you’re like most people, managing your budget can be a bit tricky. Luckily, a support coordinator can help you manage your budget, track your spending, and make adjustments as needed.
Advocating For You
Last but not least, a support coordinator can help you advocate for yourself if you’re having issues with your NDIS plan or services. They can help you resolve any problems that arise and make sure your needs are being met.

So, there you have it!
Support coordination might sound like a fancy term, but it’s really just a service that can help you get the most out of your NDIS plan.
